News and Events
To enroll at Nova, students much first attend an orientation. The orientation runs from 9 am-11:30 am. Students meet with Nova students, attend classes, and participate in a debrief with the principal. This gives students an opportunity to learn about Nova first hand and experience the type of teaching and learning that takes place within our school. Following the orientation, if a student and family chooses to attend Nova, they must go to the Seattle Public Schools enrollment center at the John Stanford Center to enroll or transfer into Nova. The John Stanford Center is located at 2445 3rd Avenue South.
Prospective Students: Fall 2013
- If a middle school student is interested in attending Nova, orientations will begin in late December and continue through January and February 2013.
- Current high school students who are interested in transferring to Nova in Fall 2013 need to attend an orientation during the same time period as middle school students.

In addition to having shared stages with award-winning, nationally-recognized poets, these students continue to write and perform locally.
